For the past few weeks, I have enjoyed preparing the sermons in the “Where Would Jesus Go?” series. The intentional focus on how Jesus related to the outcasts of his day has hopefully shed some light on how we might follow Jesus more closely, which becomes the purpose for the season of Lent. We have also intentionally highlighted community ministries in which anyone can be involved.
As a result of a recent meeting of the ministers in downtown Madison, I have invited pastors of every church in Morgan County to a meeting this afternoon in our Fellowship Hall to learn of how others can participate in The Caring Place, Madison Meal on Main and the Ecumenical Benevolence Fund. All of these serve the entire county; I hope that more churches will actively participate and also realize that these ministries are available to their members. We can always do more together than we can accomplish alone. “One Morgan” shouldn’t only be a slogan for our school system; I hope that one day “One Morgan” will also represent the Christan Community of Morgan County.
